Topaz Energy and Marine, an offshore support vessel company, has selected ABS as its fleet management software provider.
According to the press release, Topaz will use the ABS Nautical Systems Fleet Management Software. ABS says that this new relationship marks the continued expansion into the Middle East and offshore support vessel markets for ABS Nautical Systems.
René Kofod-Olsen, Chief Executive Officer of Topaz Energy and Marine, said: “We took a substantial amount of time to select the correct fleet management system. It was imperative to select a company that not only has a proven solution in the maritime industry but offers user-friendly products and a fully integrated solution that aligns with our company objectives. The trust we have built with ABS over the years also played a major part in the decision-making process.”
Topaz will install the ABS Nautical Systems Fleet Management Software suite on 58 of its core vessels to more efficiently plan for maintenance work, minimize downtime and reduce costs associated with drydocking. The relationship will also nurture the company’s safety culture by providing further safeguards for the health and safety of their employees.
“We aim to be a best-in-class, reliable, innovative service provider to our customers and we believe the ABS Nautical Systems Fleet Management Software will provide the tools necessary to help us achieve this,” Kofod-Olsen added.
Stephen Schwarz, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of ABS Nautical Systems, said: “The ABS Nautical Systems team will work with Topaz to help execute the initial installation and training, which is an essential process for effective use of the software.”
“We anticipate a strong working relationship and will strive to help them gain the most value through the use of the software.”
